“Notorious” is inspired by the true-life stories of famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and cable news producer Wendy Walker, who serve as executive producers. The series is a provocative look at the unique, sexy and dangerous interplay of criminal law and the media. Josh Berman (“Blacklist,” “Bones,” “CSI”) is writer and executive producer, and Allie Hagan (“Suri’s Burn Book”) is writer and co-executive producer. Notorious stars Perabo (Covert Affairs) as Julia George, a cable news producer with a knack for manipulating guests and thus headlines, while Daniel Sunjata (Graceland) plays Jake Gregorian, a legal eagle who tends to have his finger in many L.A. pies. J. August Richards (Angel), Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights) play Jake’s brother/law firm partner and associate, respectively.
